'clicking' checkbox on pyvcp from gcode

A checkbox is a control. Do you want a control, or an indicator? It sounds like you want an indicator.

For indicator I can use LED ))) Checkbutton will be used as control. I want to skip some part of gcode if checkbutton is checked, but also I want to toggle it off when I run code first time.

Thanks. But I'd like to stay with pyvcp. After some reading on this forum I've checked again and figured out that command "setp pyvcp.my-checkbutton.changepin 1" works fine. So now i need to understand the way how can I use it in gcode.

There are a number of ways I think you could, You could setp it using a User Defined M-code (probably the simplest way), trigger it with another hal pin such as motion.digital-out-NN.

One really nice thing about glade vs pyvcp, is you can make the buttons look like big ordinary buttons, rather than just little tiny check mark dots.

But it does seem to lack that hal changepin part, that you have to add manually with the python file when using glade.
